How do we get an expanded Quick Filters view like before the redesign?


On our board, the new JIRA redesign has quick filters in a drop down, which means it's much more awkward to switch between them then before, when it was in a row. Is there a faster workflow we can use here?

Now the new UI appears to be the default.  Quick Filters in the new UI need to have an option to display in expanded view again.  Is there a way to get it back again now that we can not go back to the old UI?  The pull down view is especially annoying because once you click a person, the name moves up to the top of the list.  During a scrum session you have to find your place again each time to go person to person.  For use in a standup the old expanded view is much more user friendly.

Hi Christopher,

At the moment it does not appear that you can alter the quick filter functionality and still maintain the new Jira UI.  However there is still the ability to revert the entire UI to use the older layout.   You can disable the new UI by:

  1. Select Jira home. If collapsed, expand the sidebar.
  2. Under NEW Jira EXPERIENCE, select Turn off for now. Optionally, provide some feedback about your experience.

If you choose to do this, I would encourage you to leave feedback as to why you are switching back.  This feedback is useful for our team to collect and understand what users find both good and bad about this new interface.


Is really the only way to expand them to fully revert the UI? Quick filters are so often used during the day that this will be reason enough to do so, but I'm hoping a new option on each quick filter can be added to selected "Group" (on / off) on each of them!

The dropdown is a great feature in addition to the old quick filters, but it's a horrible replacement for them.
